On to the C 12 V

"When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return."  ~ This quote is attributed to many people such as Smithsonian, The Post, and Leonardo Di Vinci

Iceman's C-12 study poster changed last night after he finished his check ride. I get to call out procedures for a new C-12 model now! This post look complicated to me but Iceman assures me from his Avionics Human Factor's Master's Degree perspective that this is so much better!

That last poster was for a C-12 that he was flying over the last two weeks. Yes, the cock pit was one of the oldest versions of the C-12.  The rumor is that the fleet was going to be turned into airplane pedestals before they rescued them from being gutted. How does that make you feel when it comes to students learning to fly planes?


  1. Looks very difficult! Great quote though! :)

  2. That cockpit looks foreign and terrifying to me! I'm so glad there are trained professionals who know what buttons and levers to use to fly planes because if I was in the cock-pit,I'm afraid of what the outcome would be. LOL!

  3. Oh my. That is something.

    Hm on resuing the planes? Yikes. I don't think I would like that a bit! It's hard to believe but now days I think I'd believe anything.

    Love that quote Carmen, I do believe it's true from what I've seen in flyers.

    Love to you! ~Mrs. Amelia : )

  4. Looks very complicated to me. I'm glad they understand it. Enjoy your day and God bless.

  5. Happy Birthday sis! I love you!
